Whoever would foster love will cover over an offense. But whoever repeats the matter will separate close friends. Proverbs 17:9
Dear Lord Jesus, I want to be that guy who fosters love not only between others and me but between all people and their friends. This passage makes me think before I tell anyone about someone else’s mistakes. Help me to leave the sins and mistakes of others unmentioned so they are not left lonely as others think negatively about them because of my gossip. Put a guard over my mouth and a peace in my soul as I encourage grace and loyalty between friends and family. Amen
Love delights to see other people grow in their friendship with one another.
